22's. so you will still get some tire spin off the line with that 350+ power i am assuming and not break axles/trans casings.

I dont care if i break axles i would rather they break then anything els. I am running a massive unbreakable motor mount with steeda pass. and driver side mounts. I also plan to run trac. bars to eliminate any possible wheel hop. I dont plan to pulling no 1.6 60fts but iv heard more axles breaking storys then trans castings. So if thats all i have to worry about then i want to good 60fts maybe 1.8s

What about width?

24x8x15 on at least a 7 inch rim. 22 inch will kill your gearing on the top end.

i would do a 24.5 tall M&H slick 8in wide 15in rim

sounds like you settled right in the middle. How is the rest of your car coming? Didn't you blow your motor?

FiFoci 06-13-2010 10:15 AM

yeah my motor poped about a month ago. I have a built motor and tranny that im putting in today after i go pick up the engine hoist. Ill be throwing on a topspeed manifold with toms comp turbo and pretty much every other go fast part u can think of. For now im shooting for around 300-350 then i may go to return fuel and a 30r.

well good luck with the re-build. You better have some new times by the end of the summer.[thumb]
